About Me

This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Tuesday Eats !

My breakfat choice was two slices of wheat toast, butter and a bit of grape Jelly.

After hiking up Enchanted Mountain, we went to Subway, where I had the Black Forest Ham and Turkey Salad. Ranch dressing drizzled on top complimented this.

For envening meal, I decided to do the MC Double (without the bun) from Mc Donalds.
I found a banana in the lobby of the hotel, which tasted really good.

Since I'm on a 'tea' kick lately, I found some nice tea packets in the room. Heated up some water to make some iced tea. Turned out pretty good !

Hope everyone is doing well with their low carbing. I'm learning that while on vacation FOOD SELECTION is very important. Seems like I'm exercising WAY too much, but that can't be such a bad thing , right ? LOL. Work off some of those carbs !

Absolutely. Food selection is indeed key. But, if you do go heavy on the carbs, upping the exercise should help balance things out.

I always figure/hope that the reduced stress and extra enjoyment of a vacation will make up for any dietary missteps.

Hope the rest of your time away is a blast as well!

Absolutely! Exercising is fantastic, especially if you are consuming higher carbs. Keep up the good work!
